Anonymised transcript of interview with Sharon, who is at a mixed comprehensive sixth form after going to an all girls' private school. Sharon is in a heterosexual relationship at the moment, with someone she met through a left-wing political campaign, though her mother is worried she's not enjoying her adolescence enough. She had her first sex with him, which she thought was painful and uncomfortable - she doesn't really expect to get much pleasure out of penetrative sex. She is on the pill, which she had arranged through her female doctor and had discussed with her partner beforehand. Sex education at school was taught in biology, and she got a lot from reading books and novels. Sharon would like marriage and children in the future, but would like a career first.
